When searching for the term "bars," it considers anything below 6 to be "Engine cold" and 12 bars to be "Engine hot."
Maybe they don't feel the need to be so specific any more because the bar count thin isn't that big of a deal. I'll probably keep doing it just because it's part of my pre-ride ritual and it really doesn't take a big twin more than a minute to reach 4 bars sitting at idle.
